Cascading Roses

Cascading Roses

 9 x 12 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

Took a break from my Giverny series last week to work on some commissions which are due soon, but was able to get back to the series this week with this oil painting, "Cascading Roses". I cropped this from a broader view of this rose bush. Really liked the cascading movement of the roses and also how the shapes, colors and sizes of the flowers are varied all within one small section of the bush. Great example of repetition with variation, one of the fundamental design principles.

I think this was my original reference photo which I cropped in on for a better design. Naturally beautiful!
